Jackson Casady's paintings explore ideas around the entertainment industry combined with his personal biography. Some of the work reflects an interest in settings associated with Los Angeles, specifically Hollywood and its complicated glamorous-yet-grotesque nature. The subjects are often a hubristic cast in a dreamlike world. They’re acting out a distorted reality and embellishing life. Casady says "It’s shiny, but sad."
